Hi, I'm Sarah 👋
Chatty fun arty
Hi Sarah Thank you for coming along to our wedding. Everyone absolutely loved the silhouettes & I have heard so many lovely things about you and your unique talent. Wishing you every success
I am one of 6 silhouette artists in the UK. This is an 18th C. art form which I learnt myself as there is no courses available. I have been performing since 1999 at all types of events. I love working at weddings. They are always so joyous. I do work hard to cover all guests. My mission on the day is to entertain whilst cutting as many guests silhouettes using scissors freehand within my allotted time. On average I cut 70 guests within 3 hours.

Silhouette Sarah Full Description
“There is nothing more I love than to entertain people at weddings with the rare art form of silhouette cutting. Each silhouette is beautifully executed in minutes using nothing more than specialised scissors & black paper. They are created in the moment using scissors and black paper to intricately cut a flattering likeness of the profile of a guest without the aide of drawing. Originating from 18th Century France, silhouettes are flattering likenesses of people’s profiles in miniature which is why they make such memorable favours at weddings and engage guests at corporate and private parties. There are only a few UK silhouettists today. Sarah Head lives in Berkshire with her husband and two children. She has an extensive background in all types of art. She obtained a Ba Hons in Illustration in Kent. She has been wowing people with her skill of silhouettes since 1999 at a wide range of functions up and down the country and internationally including; King Charles’ Christmas party at St James Palace, Princess Beatrice’s 18th at Windsor Castle, Dawn French’s Birthday in Cornwall to international events in; India, Lebanon and the Seychelles.

We’ve had so many comments about how good they are
Hi Sarah, I wanted to say a really big thank you for the fabulous silhouettes you did at our wedding on Friday. We’ve had so many comments about how good they are and that our guests have never seen anything like it before. Kind regards, Tom & Fiona

More than a silhouette maker
Sarah came to our wedding reception to cut paper silhouettes of our guests. We had booked thinking she’d be a good ice breaker while the party warmed up. Sarah was even better than we expected. Sarah arrived in good time to get a feel for us, the venue and what we wanted to achieve from the evening. We wanted a casual feel so Sarah spent the evening interacting with all of the guests, making sure those most shy and wouldn’t put themselves forward weren’t missed. Our guests loved their keepsake which are incredibly lifelike and we got a copy to remember who was there to share our special day. I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend Sarah for any event. Sarah’s extremely professional and so friendly she made her way around the room chatting with guests without taking the limelight from the celebrations. We love visiting our friends and seeing their cuttings displayed in their homes which I think is testament to how amazing her work is. Thank you for making our wedding reception the best ever! X

Amazing Favours for our guests
Sarah was brilliant and even now (our wedding was 2016) people talk about their silhouettes and have them on display still. Sarah did an exceptional piece for us that made me cry- the only image of my husband and I and our two daughters on the day. As you can see it is beautiful. Highly recommend for your wedding.
